E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.
Amour propre.
One’s self-love, vanity, or opinion of what is due to self. To make an appeal to one’s amour propre, is to put a person on his metal. To wound one’s amour propre, is to gall his good opinion of himself—to wound his vanity. (French.)   1
